Harry's back in town
LENOX — Harry Connick Jr. is returning to Tanglewood this summer for his first appearance in three years.
The Grammy and Emmy Award-winning artist will join the Tanglewood season for a performance of "A New Orleans Tricentennial Celebration" in the Koussevitzky Music Shed 7 p.m. June 23.
The concert will feature Connick's hits and New Orleans favorites.
Connick has received multiple Grammy and Emmy Awards as well as Tony nominations for his live and recorded musical performances, his achievements on screen large and small and his appearances on Broadway as both an actor and a composer.
He last performed at Tanglewood in 2015 and made his Tanglewood debut in 1990.
The foundation of Connick's art is the music of his native New Orleans, where he began performing as a pianist and vocalist at the age of five.
Tickets for the Harry Connick Jr. performance go on sale Monday at Tanglewood.org and by calling 888-266-1200.
